The 2009-2010 NHL season is just around the corner. Boston Bruins coach Claude Julien was eager to get his boys going and was already very pleased in regards to their condition. “It’s good. I think somebody asked me a question yesterday about the condition of the team and our guys are in pretty good shape,” said Julien. “We got the things that we wanted to accomplish done and hopefully we’ll keep moving forward tomorrow.”
Phil Kessel has been the real center of conversation around the locker room and front office. So far the Toronto Maple Leafs are looking to acquire Bostons Right winger for two possible first round draft picks and a second round pick. The New York Rangers and Nashville Predators have also shown interest.
With Blake Wheeler, Milan Lucic, and Captain Zdeno Chara already being assessed at midseason form, there is certainly some major excitement brewing in Boston. Chara has been emphasizing the importance of work ethic to his team, saying “Obviously, I want to do my best, just like in every training camp. There is a lot of…competition and it’s always involved and you want to set a example. So that should, pretty much, be the same mindset for everybody else.” The Bruins are scheduled to take on the Washington Capitals for their home opener at the TD Banknorth Garden Thursday, October 1st.
